Learn CPR and first aid at our classes

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid are lifesaving skills. CPR involves applying chest compressions and rescue breathing when someone’s heart and breathing has stopped. First aid provides help in an emergency until you can get medical assistance. It encompasses a wide variety of treatments, including wound management, splinting and choking rescue techniques.

Anyone can learn these skills and help those around them, whether at a school, fitness center or hospital. According to the National Safety Council, administering first aid and CPR can prevent 25 percent of all emergency room visits.

Goshen Health provides CPR and first aid classes in Goshen, IN, for both community members and professionals. Our Heartsaver CPR, AED and first aid courses can prepare you to address an emergency situation.
